art institute of chicago engagement session (andrea + tanner are engaged!) – chicago engagement photographers

Even though we are totally not morning people, we’ve come to love it when our couples say they’re up for sunrise shoots.

No one is around, the light is perfect, and you can sneak back to bed for a nap without feeling guilty about it.  Win/win/win!

Andrea + Tanner found us on Style Me Pretty + first told us about their destination wedding that they were planning in the incredible Santa Barbara, California.  Turns out, they actually live in Chicago, which was kinda perfect for us, since we find ourselves in the Midwest just about every other day.  We got to rendezvous with them for their engagement sesh in Chicago, and then shoot their wedding just this past Saturday at Rancho Dos Pueblos, and it has all been darnright perfect.

These two met in Greece + have been together for over 10 years now, living all around the world/country together, and their love for each other absolutely shines through.  They are smitten, they are devoted, and they are totally in love.  Have we mentioned that they’re also totally gorgeous to photograph?  You’ll see in just a sec…

Andrea + Tanner are in Croatia for their honeymoon (totes jello) so they might not even see this for days to come, but even still, the rest of us can enjoy.  Check back for their wedding to be blogged in the coming, uh, 3 years?  (Just kidding.  We’re getting caught up on the queue now!)

Enjoy a few of our faves from this special morning… xx
